Tried some new SparkRecipes

Sunday, September 14, 2014

This morning I made Runner's Oatmeal Blueberry Pancakes

I didn't have fresh blueberries so used thawed frozen ones. I think it made the batter very runny so I had to add some regular flour to thicken it up a bit. (i noticed now I forgot the part of the recipe that says to let the batter sit for 10 min to let it thicken. Oops!)

I also added a few walnuts. Mine did not look ANYTHING like the photo. I wasn't sure how well they were going to cook up but they did actually cook rather like regular pancakes only much moister. I tried them with syrup and peanut butter and for my tastes they were much better with a very thin layer of peanut butter. They turned out to be quite good and I plan on making them again.

For lunch I made Samantha's Creamy Cauliflower Soup

I thought this was really very good. I didn't have chicken stock so just used Better Than Bullion - Chicken and water. Delicious! I find hot food much more satisfying when I am really hungry and this hit the spot.

    Do you like cooking or is this something new for you? I didn't do much cooking, but made an agreement with my husband that if the ingredients were here that I would cook.

    Some of the recipes we have tried that we we really liked are

    * Baja Fish Tacos
    * Lime Shrimp
    * Shrimp Scampi
    * Bruschetta Chicken Bake
    * Orange Chicken
    * Bourbon Chicken

    I have yet to try any of the Spark Recipe's. I plan on it when we can get the ingredients. I've been saving so many recipes! I may have to try the pancake one, it sounds good.

    I love the protein pancakes (egg white, oatmeal, and cottage cheese). I am also a huge fan of crock-pot recipes. Easy, quick, and usually really good (I always substitute the 'canned soup' ingredient with either diced tomatoes or stock).

    I've found some great new favorites through SparkRecipes! My pre-workout favorites are the energy balls:
    pe-detail.asp?recipe=999554; I substitute low-sugar craisins for the raisins and they are awesome!

    The Creamy Chicken and Spinach Bake was a HUGE hit with both my wife and son:
    In the line-up this week, I'm trying the Low-Carb Cheesy Stuffed Poblano Peppers (subbing ground turkey for ground beef) and Vegetarian Lentil Soup.

    I have tried several and most are just as advertised. Glad to hear others enjoy them as well.
